There are tons of rock stars Bullet Blues guys could look to for grungy style inspiration, but no rock star does it better than one of the progenitors of grunge music (and grunge style), Eddie Vedder. The Pearl jam frontman, composer, and solo artist is well known for his distinctive voice and outspoken political views, but Vedder’s comfy and practical grunge style has inspired generations of rock stars and rock aficionados alike since Pearl Jam released their first album in 1991.
Though Vedder’s style was much more adventurous in the 90s during the heyday of grunge, Vedder’s toned-down style of today is edgy, comfortable, and flattering, and consists of three key components: a pair of rugged jeans, a soft vintage-y button up, and an edgy t-shirt. Lucky for you, you can get all of these essential pieces right here from your favorite Made in USA designer denim brand, Bullet Blues!
Read on to score Vedder’s iconic look with all your fav American made denim styles from Bullet Blues!
No rock star’s wardrobe would be complete without an arsenal of perfectly worn in blue jeans – Eddie Vedder has been photographed wearing multiple denim styles, from boot cut jeans to relaxed fit jeans to the tapered leg style shown here. At Bullet Blues, we love the look of tapered leg jeans, especially for edgier guys, because of how flattering the cuts are and how well they wear with edgy favorites like chunky boots, leather jackets, and tee shirts.
If the perfect pair of tapered leg jeans has eluded you, look no further than the Bullet Blues Rebel Indigo Dark Blue Tapered Leg Jean. Like all Bullet Blues products, the Rebel Indigo Dark Blue Tapered Leg Jean is made of the finest denim here in the United States, and the 99% cotton and 1% stretch blend fabric ensures maximum comfort and breathability without sacrificing quality. This denim is stonewashed and has a special ‘whiskering’ effect for a timeless look that every cool guy loves.
Soft Button-Up Shirt
Guys like Eddie Vedder gravitated to flannel shirts and rugged jackets in the early 90s because of the harsh weather in the Pacific Northwest, but these grungy, comfy layered looks caught on with rockers and rock stars everywhere, securing the flannel’s place in the pantheon of rock star style. Vedder rocks several iterations of this rock star staple, like this short sleeved-version here, but he is not often seen without a plaid button-up of any kind – especially on stage.
If American made plaid shirts are right up your alley, check out the Bullet Blues Patton December Button Up Shirt. Designed with for maximum comfort, style, and versatility, this 100% cotton shirt can be worn for any occasion and with any style, but we love this shirt particularly when it’s thrown over a band tee or a white v-neck for an extra grungy, edgy look like Vedder’s.
Seasoned rock stars like Vedder probably have a crazy collection of band and concert tees from their numerous tours and the life on the road, and Vedder is often photographed in soft-looking vintage tee-shirts for fellow bands, like the The Who shirt seen here. Edgy tee shirts are great bases for grungy layered looks like Vedder’s, and will ensure that you’ll stay cozy this fall and winter without sacrificing your bad-boy style.
If band tees aren’t your thing but you still want to get that rock-star layered look, reach for a stylish tee-shirt like the Bullet Blues 100% American made LIFE IS A FUN RIDE Designer T-Shirt. The incredibly soft cotton blend fabric allows for that covetable, vintage-y, lived-in feel, while the slightly tapered fit and v-neck provides a trendy, contemporary edge.
